Admiring Yoro Waterfall which won the Aliénor Harpsichord Competition takes its title from a woodblock print of the same name by Hokusai. The music begins by sketching in aspects of the print and then the sound of the waterfall gradually enters into perception before dying away again at the end.Graham Lynch Profile & Works
